Brendon Glenn, who was unarmed at the time, was shot and killed by LAPD on Venice Beach. Although the security footage in front of Cairo Cowboy captured the tragic event, police  originally refused to release the footage fearing it would cause severe backlash from the community.

The officer who shot Glenn says he was reaching for a fellow officer’s gun even though eyewitnesses and video do not show it.

As written in The Root, “…unlike in most cases, the police chief says that the officer who shot Glenn should be prosecuted. The cop whose firearm Glenn was allegedly reaching for testified that he didn’t feel Glenn trying to reach for his weapon and said that he had no idea why his partner shot Brendon Glenn.”
